Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I’m inclined toward doing a double deck layout that would provide some railfaning on the lower level with an interchange to a branch line on the upper deck.
My room has some limitations but an access door requires that there be 41” clear below the lower deck framing and, because of sloping ceilings, the upper deck might be shallow - right now it is mocked up at 12” deep but could be less.
I model in On30 so would like room for scale structures that don’t feel too compressed but can live with some shallow flats on the upper level.
Below is a mock-up where the lower level is at 48” and the upper at 62”. Neither have roadbed yet. You may notice that I tried a 31-1/2” radius, or 3-1/2 times the car length for inside curves but didn’t like it. Four times, or 36” radius, looks so much better!
